A Simple Example Using Pentaho Data Integration (aka Kettle)

Let me introduce you an old ETL companion: its acronym is PDI, but it’s better known as Kettle and it’s part of the Hitachi Pentaho BI suite.

With Kettle is possible to implement and execute complex ETL operations, building graphically the process, using an included tool called Spoon.

I implemented a lot of things with it, across several years (if I’m not wrong, it was introduced in 2007) and always performed well.
